Annual Association Membership MeetingCompliments of COVID-19 the 2020 Annual Membership Meeting did not occur as planned. However we are planning to have one in 2021. As many of you know elections are an important part of these meetings. Elections are held for board member Director and Delegate positions and are covered below. The Board/Delegate nomination applications listed below can be printed and then completed and mailed. Or, if you have the Adobe Acrobat Reader program on your computer or phone, you can complete the application form on your device and submit it electronically. Eligibility requirements are noted on the respective application. The forms will also be available at the annual membership meeting.
Our local Bylaws state that we operate on a staggered system (odd/even year elections). This means that half of the board positions are elected in odd years and the other half of the positions are elected in even years. The term of office for all positions is two years. As noted above, our intent is to hold a membership meeting and conduct elections in 2021.
The term for those board members who were elected in 2018 (an even year) expired July 31, 2020. However, USBC extended those terms (due to COVID-19) until the association is able to hold a membership meeting and vote to ratify the extention of those positions. This will continue their term through 7/31/22. At the moment, those positions consist of the 1st Vice President, and director positions 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.
The "Odd" year positions, up for election in 2021, consist of the following officers: President, 2nd Vice President, Sgt-at-Arms and director positions 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. Their term will conclude on July 31, 2023.
For those interested in joining the Board of Directors, the Nomination Application Form is HERE.
NOTE: ALL members of the Board MUST have and maintain current USBC membership and RVP (Registered Volunteer Program) compliance throughout their term. NOTE: Youth 18 and under are not required to have RVP. Newly elected board members have 45 days to complete SafeSport training and pass a background check to obtain RVP compliance.
Yes. Yes. I know. I know. Why do you have to have USBC membership, etc., if you do not bowl? Because USBC says we must. It's not a bowling issue, it's a Board membership issue. Even if centers are closed or leagues are not going, the Board is still working.
For those wondering why Board members MUST be RVP compliant, US Public law #115-126 says so. For those curious about the law (and are having difficulty getting to sleep) you can read ALL about it (317 pages) HERE.
Basically, Congress has mandated (codified) that the Governing Bodies of all amateur sports - USBC is the Governing Body for the sport of bowling in the U.S. - ensure that the youth participants of their respective sport be protected from bullies, hazing, harassment, predators, etc.. It NEVER hurts to have extra eyes looking out for the safety of our kids.
